Subject: Support Google's optional redirect to SSL
Download (untitled) / with headers

You can now set Google apps to require SSL for improved security. When that option is chosen, and Net::Google::Calendar attempts to connect, it gets a 301-Permanently Moved response, which Net::Google::Calendar then treats as a hard error and aborts. There seems to be a Google bug involved: the redirect response does NOT point to an https URL; instead it points to precisely the same URL that Net::Google::Calendar just tried to use. It would be helpful to add some defensive code that does one or more of the following: 1) Specifically states that the new URL matches the old URL and Google must have a bug; 2) Warns that the problem might be that SSL is required; 3) Automatically retry with SSL before giving up.
